7I know that the 'old timers' frequent users know how to hook up DVD and VCR on the converter box, I was changing coaxial from conv.bx to TV with DVD coaxial for too long,right now I have Dig.Conv.box and DVDplayer and VCR connected to TV on one 75Ohm coaxial cable with 2additional support cables, since I have no Stereo the AVScables are good only for VCR recording, out of 1 frontal and 2 sets out lets in back of VCR 1 outlet gives stronger volume than the other in back or front panel. There are ma ny people who have only one jack on TV, have no Stereo, or want no recording, the coaxial cables are better for them (I just got 2min cut off warning on library computer. I will continue saturday). The 1st connection- Antenna connected to Conv.box is constant, 75 Ohm coaxcable from ConvBox hooked up into DVD Antenna In-put then another 75 Ohm coaxcable from DVD Out-put connected to primary TV jack and you are ready to use, the 2nd connection - the Ant. to Conv.box remains constant, the 75Ohm coaxial from Conv.box to VCR Ant. In-put, 2nd 75 Ohm coax. from VCR Out-put to DVD Ant.In-put then coax. from DVD to TV and you are set to go. All units are running independently,do not was te electricity. You do not need expensive coaxial cables, the 75 Ohm requirement for $1.19 or $10-or $20-are the same, I have cheap 6feet long push in, also the iNet-Tivax provided 3ft long steely screw on are very good, the shorter cables the better,it may increase also sound level. Information about DVD/VCR play or recording are available especially on AVSForum,the TV people acknowledge it but do not give details for it is against broadcasters interests, they do'nt want you to watch DVD-VCR films they want you to watch TV especially commercials and go buy things to have economy moving, that's why the TV people do'nt provide needed info. As you know the AVCables are only for recordings, again 2min (cut off warning), the Ant. connected to Conv.box,the coaxial to VCRAnt. Input from VCR Output coaxial to TV, the AVSCables 2or 3(red for Stereo) from Conv.box to VCR for recording,'Auto change - AVSCables connec ted to front panel' notification appears only if conv.box is already running, in order to record the VCR may to be on L2or1 or Ch.3> The signal from Conv.box via coaxial thru VCR to TV showing all the digi tal to analog channels programs and via AVCables to VCR whatever channel you change during recor ding like 2-1 in diagonal box,signal and volume level in addition to CS or CC all is recorded. Since I do'nt have DVD Recorder I suppose that the VCR hook up would apply also to DVDRec., Enjoy 1 more week.
